Have you ever drunk your usual cup of tea made from your favourite brand and suddenly notice the awful taste to it?

This awful taste would make you want to spit out the tea.

Does this sound familiar?

Limescale building up in your kettle is the main problem that causes the change of the taste of your boiled water.


If you live in a hard water area then limescale deposits in your kettle should be more of a big problem than someone who lives in a soft water area.

I always like to use natural products where possible and limescale can be easily removed by lemon juice.

How To Remove Limescale From A Kettle.

Step 1

Empty the kettle and pour one cup water and one cup lemon juice.

Step 2

Boil the kettle with the mixture of water and lemon juice inside.

Step 3.

Step 4

How Often Should You Descale Your Kettle

Removing limescale from your kettle should be done once a month or once every two months if you live in a hard water area but if you live in a soft water area you want to do it once in every three months.

It’s also a good idea to do a visual observation of the inside of your kettle to determine if your kettle needs limescale to be removed.

If your kettle element is no longer shining and is clogged up by milky white deposits that means it needs descaling.

Or the taste of boiled water starts to taste funny than it means it’s time to remove limescale from your kettle.
